Global Data Center Liquid Cooling Market to Reach $7.72 Billion by 2026

The Global Data Center Liquid Cooling Market is projected to reach $7.72 Billion by 2026, reveals the premium market intelligence study by CRI Report. The study also highlights that the market is set to witness a CAGR of 27.31% during the forecast period from 2021 to 2026.

Data center liquid cooling technology is a type of thermal management process or operation in any data center. The difference between traditional cooling technologies and liquid cooling is in the use of the cooling medium. Systems such as computer room air conditioning (CRAC), computer room air handler (CRAH), and cooling tower type use air as a cooling medium, and thus directional airflow is used as means of heat transfer, whereas in liquid cooling, water or dielectric fluid is utilized.

According to Rakhi Tanwar, Principal Analyst, CRI Report, “Liquid cooling technologies offer an efficient and sustainable alternative to air-based cooling for data centers. The data centers are witnessing a high growth scenario impacted by COVID-19, which has also influenced data center operators to increase rack densities. Since cooling is a crucial part of the industry, a growing number of rack densities will increase the adoption of liquid cooling solutions.”
